In meteor 1.3 beta, why npm stored in npm devDependencies not in dependencies?

Hello,
I've notices in the package.json sample you provided in the README, npm dependencies is stored in using npm ...--save-dev, is there a reason for that?. And if I had NODE_ENV to be production would it fail?

Here is a very good explanation: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/18875674/whats-the-difference-between-dependencies-devdependencies-and-peerdependencies
... in this particular case this isn't so important, but all that postcss plugins are actually dev dependencies so I think this is the place for them.

First you need to run npm install anyway, so there is no difference if you run Meteor with NODE_ENV in production it will already have all dependencies installed.
